Italian food just got even more exciting as the Birra Moretti Gran Tour returns for a second summer of great food, beer and company. Kicking off at the Summerhall in Edinburgh on the 9th July, the tour will then move to London and end in Leeds in August.
Arancina, Paste E Basta, Cooking Cooks, The Arencini Bros and Gelupo will be returning as well as 12 new exciting vendors serving specialty cuisine from all over Italy, alongside live music and the opportunity to enjoy Birra Moretti.
Each vendor will showcase authentic cooking methods and share signature regional dishes they are representing, such as a pizza from Naples, arancini balls from Sicily and Panino Teca with famous truffles from Norcia, plus a host of others.
This year’s Gran Tour continues Birra Moretti’s rich heritage in the UK street food movement. Over the past decade, Birra Moretti has been involved with Street Feast, Urban Food Festival, Big Feastival, Pizza in the Piazza and Model Market to name just a few.
TV chef and event maÃƒÂ®tre d’, Joe Hurd commented: Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Moretti Gran Tour blends all the important aspects of Italian culinary culture, from great ingredients to regional delicacies, alongside the popular street food movement.
This year sees the introduction of master classes where you don’t just taste great food, you can makes great food.Ã¢â‚¬Â
David Lette, Birra Moretti Brand Director said: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Last year’s events were hugely successful, so we’re really excited to bring the tour back again- taking the best of Italy to more cities and with more vendors.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Enjoying great beer and food with friends is an important part of both Italian and British cultures, so together with our street food partners we are looking forward to creating an event that is not to be missedÃ¢â‚¬Â.
Advanced tickets are priced at £10 plus a £1 booking fee. This includes two Birra Moretti, two dishes from any vendor on-site and a gelato. Tickets can be booked at www.designmynight.com.
